Lorraine Schiller's Profile
My name is Lorraine and I have been creating artwork since I can remember! I have developed skills in many mediums including watercolors, acrylic and oil paints, pen and ink and printmaking. It was after getting married and moving across the country that I began pursuing art on a more full time basis.
Over the past few years I have honed in on what inspires me the most which is the beauty I find in flowers using oil paints. I'm drawn to flowers because of their beauty, color and diversity, giving me an endless source of inspiration for my work! I also love the idea that flowers have been used for centuries as a means of communication, there was even a language created using flowers called floriography- using flowers symbolically to convey different feelings and emotions. I feel art and flowers both exist as wonderful forms of communicating something deep, without words, but with images…
